•APC National Chairman, Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, has hit back at governors of the party that are reported to be moving against him, saying he would not succumb to their antics and impunity.
He said contrary to insinuations by some of them and their allying stakeholders that he was out to liquidate the party, his mission was to galvanise the APC into a disciplined and cohesive platform ready to clinch victory at next year’s general elections.
Oshiomhole’s fight back coincides with the intensification of efforts by governors to remove him from office. According to THISDAY report, 15 of 21 governors of the party, being coordinated by one of them from the South-west, are collecting signatures to force a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting that would unseat the national chairman.
The governors would be converging on Abuja tomorrow to finalise their objective.
The party has also explained that it opted for consensus and made some hard choices in a desperate bid to meet the October 18 deadline set for submission of its candidates’ list for elections into the National Assembly
Aggrieved aspirants have continued to storm the national secretariat of the APC with their supporters to vent their anger.
